Jeddah Islamic Port enhances decarbonisation activities

The Saudi Ports Authority (Mawani) has announced cutbacks in crane activity and truck turnaround times at Jeddah Islamic Port in line with its annual target of lowering carbon footprint at the port by 1,046 tons in 2023.

Complementing the goals of the National Transport and Logistics Strategy (NTLS), the Jeddah port's decarbonisation efforts form part of Mawani's Green Ports initiative that seeks to reduce energy consumption by 15% through equipment electrification and diesel phaseout across the coutnry's trade hubs.

Through a 33% decrease in average yard crane moves for every imported container that requires manual inspection as well as a 17% reduction in truck turnaround times, the port further solidifies its position as a cost-competitive and operationally-efficient logistics destination.

The national maritime regulator's environmental strategies are inspired by the Saudi Green Initiative, a national climate action plan that aims to unite the country's push towards ecological protection, energy transition, and emissions reductions through a joint collaborative approach between the public and private sectors.
